Current work and research interests
I am the Program Coordinator for the Bachelor of Education; secondary education (short program) and Associate Degree of education: secondary education at Odisee University of Applied Sciences and Internationalization Coordinator for the Faculty of Physical Education and Physiotherapy at Vrije Universiteit Brussel. I have a special interest in an internationalization of the curriculum and global competence in education.
I am an active member of the Internationalization Working Group in the European Network of Physiotherapy Education and the facilitator for the Internationalization Learning Community in VELOV (Flemish Teacher Education Association).
Mostly looking forward to working in ITTS, because…
I love the topic of the project, like the good vibes of working together with colleagues from different countries and backgrounds, sharing perspectives and learning from each other!
